Lexus overview

Lexus is the luxury car division of the Toyota Motor Corporation. Founded in Japan in 1983, it did not make its debut in the UK until 1990, following a successful launch in the USA the previous year. Lexus entered the UK market with just one model, the LS 400. Its impact was significant. The LS 400 set new standards for premium quality and changing perceptions of what a luxury vehicle should be.

Lexus is pronounced ‘lek·suhs’. The marque is known for offering drivers premium luxury and exceptional build quality when it comes to their cars. Engine performance, reliability and state-of-the-art technology are at the forefront for this brand. It is suggested that the name Lexus is derived from ‘luxe,’ the French word for sophistication and elegance and the Greek word for language, ‘lexicon.’ Others have suggested Lexus means ‘luxury exports to the US’ — a nod to its arrival in the US in 1989.

The Lexus model range has developed over the years to meet different consumers’ driving requirements and styles. However, its success has never detracted from its original fundamental principles of quality, performance and craftsmanship. As one of the world’s leading luxury vehicle brands, Lexus is often compared with other premium marques, such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Jaguar. However, in terms of price, it tends to be less expensive than luxury rivals like Mercedes-Benz or BMW.

Lexus has been at the forefront of luxury electric vehicle production since 2005 and is considered a pioneer in luxury electric and hybrid vehicles. It entered the electric vehicle market with the introduction of the Lexus RX400h, making history as the world’s first hybrid luxury car. It delivered impressive fuel economy and all the premium features and flawless build quality consumers expect from Lexus.

Today, Lexus offers a range of hybrid vehicles which harness the latest technologies to combine the strengths of conventional internal combustion engines with the benefits of electrification. In 2021, it launched the UX 300e – its first all-electric model.

Popular Lexus models

Introduced in 1999, the Lexus IS is a luxury compact executive car that was originally sold in Japan from 1998 as the Toyota Altezza. Its highly acclaimed design won Japan’s Car of the Year Award for 1998-1999. Powered by a straight-six engine with a six-speed manual gearbox, it provided 153bhp, with a top speed of 134mph and accelerated from 0-62 mph in 9.3 seconds. Features include climate control, electric windows, electric folding mirrors, iconic Lexus taillights and comfortable seats with a full range of adjustment. The Lexus IS offers a range of trims and engine sizes. The second-generation model launched in 2005 with extensive technical and aesthetic changes, including the use of aluminium to keep its weight to around 50kg. A third generation was revealed in 2013 at the Detroit Motor Show with the latest safety technologies designed to prevent collisions in various driving conditions.

A mid-sized luxury saloon, the Lexus ES (which stands for ‘executive sedan’) first launched in 1998 as part of the marque’s UK debut, along with the Lexus LS400. With its refined and aerodynamic exterior and well-built spacious interior, it is a popular choice for drivers looking for a luxurious, comfortable vehicle for commuting in the city or going on longer journeys. Offering multiple generations, the Lexus ES has a V6 engine, front wheel drive and a raft of safety features, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keeping assistance and blind spot monitoring.

The Lexus NX is a compact luxury crossover SUV which was introduced in 2014. An instant success, it quickly became the best-selling Lexus model in Europe. While it shares some parts with the Toyota RAV4, the design, suspension, some engines, its spacious interior and luxury features are exclusive to Lexus. The NX has plenty of safety features and its advanced technology ensures you stay connected. A range of engine options and hybrid variants are available.

Launched at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the Lexus UX is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV. It was Lexus’ smallest crossover model until the introduction of the subcompact LBX in 2023. The UX stands for ‘urban explorer’ and its innovative technology and safety features make it the ideal vehicle for navigating city streets or going away on a weekend break. It shares the same GA-C platform as the E210 series Toyota Corolla and is available as a petrol, hybrid or fully electric vehicle.

Manufacturer awards

Lexus has garnered countless and consecutive awards related to the reliability of their models. 2023 became the fourth time the marque had been voted as the ‘Most Reliable Brand’ in Auto Trader’s New Car Awards. This award is based on 220,000 UK car owners who responded to the annual survey. They were also ranked number one in the annual WhatCar? Reliability Survey for the seventh time. Honest John corroborated both of these awards by naming the brand ‘number one for reliability and customer satisfaction’ in the same year.

Individual models have won a whole host of awards, and in the electric sector the Lexus NX 450h was crowned the Best Large Plug-in Car for the 2nd year running in the 2023 Carbuyer Best Car Awards. The model also retained its title as Plug-in Hybrid of the Year in the 2022 What Car? Awards.
